Frequently Asked Questions...

How is 13F (Fire Support Specialist)?

Do they see combat or are they stuck manning radios? I've heard mixed things.


Answer:

If you're assigned to a higher echelon of command (brigade effects, division, etc) you'll be working in a TOC doing fire planning, overlays, radios, digital coms, etc.

If you're assigned to maneuver (brigade COLT, Infantry, Cav, Armor battalions) like most 13F are you should be integrated down to the platoon or company team level doing target acquisition and directing fires.

If your command doesn't understand how to properly use FIST then there is lots of room to take the shaft like getting left in the TOC on radio watch. I've seen it both ways.
